When we look around us, it's easy to feel overwhelmed by the obstacles that stand in our way. Whether it's a difficult situation at work, a challenging relationship, or a health issue, these obstacles can feel like they're too big to overcome. It's in these moments that we need to remember that our faith in God is stronger than any obstacle we may face.
Hebrews 11:1 tells us that "faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see." With faith in God, we can have confidence that He will guide us through even the toughest challenges. He has promised to be with us always and to never leave us nor forsake us( Deut 31:6). Faith is not the absence of fear or doubt, but it's the belief that, despite our fear and doubt, God is bigger and more powerful than any obstacle we may face.
One key to overcoming any obstacle is to focus on Jesus the author and finisher of our faith(Hebrews 12:2) and to trust that He knows what's best for us. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight."
When we put our faith in God, He will work through us to accomplish great things. We may not always understand how He will do it, but we can trust that He will make a way for us. He is the one who gives us the strength to overcome any obstacle and to move forward in life.
So when you're facing an obstacle today, remember to turn to God in faith. He will give you the strength and the guidance you need to overcome anything that comes your way. Trust in Him and have faith that He will work everything out for your good.
